Harper 1912 1103976400 / 9781103976409 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Illustrated by Frank Craig 
Original 1912 hardback printing not a reprint. "Enoch Arnold Bennett (27 May 1867 – 27 March 1931) was an English writer. He is best known as a novelist, but he also worked in other fields such as the theatre, journalism, propaganda and films. Bennett suffered from a stammer, which Somerset Maugham described as making it "painful to watch the struggle he had sometimes to get the words out." Maugham, who also suffered from a stammer, speculated that "except for the stammer which forced him to introspection, Arnold would never have become a writer.During the First World War Bennett became Director of Propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information. His appointment was made on the recommendation of Lord Beaverbrook, who also recommended him as Deputy Minister of the Department at the end of the war. He refused a knighthood in 1918. Bennett died of typhoid at his home in Baker Street, London, on 27 March 1931. Bennett was a prolific writer with dozens of titles including fiction, plays, non-fiction, Film adaptations, Opera, and propaganda. ; Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 268 pages

?This is local history at its best. John Hanc’s lively, absorbing narrative is both nostalgic and sophisticated.”
?Barnet Schecter, author of The Battle for New York and The Devil’s Own Work

?[A]ny citizen of New York will be proud to have this book in their collection.”

?Donald J. Trump

 

Jones Beach looms large in the hearts and lives of millions of New Yorkers. From its windswept beginnings on the far edge of an empire to its twentieth-century status as the greatest public beachfront resort in America, it has been home to countless memories. Situated on a barrier island linked to Long Island, Jones Beach State Park is today the most popular beach on the East Coast, with some six million visitors a year.

 

In this evocative illustrated book, John Hanc explores the traditions, institutions, controversies, and characters of this beloved seaside resort, now a state historic landmark. His richly detailed prose comes together with a wonderful collection of archival photographs to make this a must read for anyone who has visited Jones Beach. The foreword is by ?Mr. Long Island,” longtime former Newsday columnist Ed Lowe.
